When you are tempted, you shouldn't say, "God is tempting me." God can't be tempted by evil. And he doesn't tempt anyone.
But your own evil longings tempt you. They lead you on and drag you away.
When they are allowed to grow, they give birth to sin. When sin has grown up, it gives birth to death.
My dear brothers and sisters, don't let anyone fool you.
Every good and perfect gift is from God. It comes down from the Father. He created the heavenly lights. He does not change like shadows that move.
God chose to give us new birth through the message of truth. He wanted us to be the first and best of everything he created.
